Last week, Chavez promoted Major General Henry Rangel Silva to general-in-chief, the top position in the Venezuelan military command.
It was a rogue act because, in 2008, the U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control named Rangel and two other Chavez loyalists as "Tier II Kingpins" for material support of drug trafficking.
The U.S. designation came of an administrative process so strict and thorough the U.S. government could indict someone if it's right — and be sued if it's wrong. There have been no lawsuits.
Rangel is said to provide material support for Colombia's FARC communist terrorists, who control 60% of Colombia's coc aine production, pushing it into Mexico and other destinations.

Since you brought up the CIA...
did you know if you drive between Tucson and Phoenix AZ you'll pass an airport on the west side of the highway...
